Baked Cherry Tomatoes and Feta | A simple and delicious Greek tomato recipe that has the perfect balance of acidity and salteness

Baked Cherry Tomatoes and Feta is another favorite of mine and an easy appetizer to prepare in a short  amount of time.

I must admit I’m not a big tomato person, but this recipe is lovely and the combinations of flavors are fantastic. The slightly salty feta balances deliciously with the acidity of the tomatoes that will have non-tomato lovers asking for seconds.

I’ve found that this recipe goes really nicely with Kalamata olive bread.

Cooking time may vary depending on how soft you would like them. Pairs nicely with Greek wine. Also, for a variation: once you cut tomatoes in to halves, remove inside and stuff with feta, follow recipe (without additional cheese). They make little bite size hors d'oeuvre.
